Info page: Gold and Silver Foil labels

Gold and Silver Foil labels. We have quite a range of label shapes and sizes to choose from in either gold or silver foil.

Our Gold and Silver Foil label materials are paper based labels with metallic content and enhanced adhesives. They can add a real classy look to many documents, certificates, presentations and gifts. They are available in all of our more than 180 shapes and sizes.

As with all self adhesive labels, a clean dry surface works best. A smooth surface gives a greater contact area and therefore better adhesion. All self adhesive labels are pressure sensitive, so a firm rub after application helps adhesion.

Printer Suitability

Gold and silver foil labels are well suited to commercial offset printers and to screen printing.

Gold and silver foil labels are not suitable for inkjet printers or laser printers.

Because Laser printers use heated rollers to fuse the toner to the paper, the presence of metallic elements in the Gold and Silver Foil label materials can cause an excessive build up of heat in the machine. Therefore does not recommend they are used in a Laser printer.

Some of our customers have reported using a laser printer to print on our Gold and Silver Foil labels successfully, but only by having very limited print runs. They would run two or three sheets through at a time, and then let the machine cool down before doing any more. The resulting print can be relatively soft and easy to scratch off.

Though this has seemed to work for them, has no direct experience of this and does not recommend it. recommends that you ask us for a free sample so that you can test it before you buy.
